The Mars Veterinary team of scientists and geneticists have been researching and developing canine DNA tests for nearly 10 years making Wisdom Panel canine DNA tests the most comprehensive breed analysis tests in the world. Mars Veterinary holds the worldwide exclusive license for use of the patented breed analysis process from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Institute and has tested more than 750,000 dogs.

The Wisdom Panel 3.0 test provides the following:

  • Screening for more than 200 breeds and varieties
  • Identification of purebred ancestors present in the first three generations (to the great-grandparent level)
  • A predicted weight profile
  • Screening for the MDR1 genetic mutation that can affect sensitivity towards common drugs

Wisdom Panel 3.0 covers more than 200 breeds, types and varieties including all those recognized by The Kennel Club and can be run for mixed-breed, designer, or purebred dogs. The procedure is the same for all three, but you decide at the time of activation how you would like us to run it. For purebred and designer dogs, the test will provide an additional Principle Component Analysis chart comparing your dog with others of that same breed(s) in our database and for purebred tests specifically, an additional Homozygosity Profile.

The Wisdom Panel 3.0 Canine DNA Test kit includes:

  • Instructions
  • DNA cheek swabs – both for use on one dog
  • Pre-paid shipping label and envelope
